Default Custom Desktop for Alienware?

Hello guys,

Someone told me to exchange my custom desktop for his alienware m17 r3

This is almost all stuff of my desktop : Game-Debate Member - kareklas

He told me some of his alienware laptop :

i7 2670qm
6990m 2gb
6gb ram
750hdd
17.3 inch (1920x1080)

Any advice please?

Your rig is 2x more powerful if not more than that Alienware. I wouldn't pay no more than 800USD for that laptop based on hardware. If he sells it for a high amount it's only because of the name. Keep your rig dude.

I really wouldn't know because I'm sure doing just a direct conversion of currency won't show what's worth where.
